So it's the fight between:

A. Nervous governments caught short on some cold winter's night with much too much wind so that powerlines are flying over the country but high energy prices.

B. Nervous governments are resisting, afraid of being caught short on some cold winter's night with little wind and very low energy prices.

I prefer the latter.

"Except how do you know such a device is installed on your car? Do you examine it everywhere, and compare what is there with photographs of a know-safe car? Or against the wiring diagrams from the manufacturer? Don't forget behind or inside of other things, like behind the glovebox?"

Or your wife/husband/'friend' might have installed one, some of them cost less than 50 bucks with a prepaid card on it they are even able to listen in on what's being said in the car.

"Organizations like this are fatally lazy, in that they like to quote statistics and suggest that any incomplete data must be hiding something nefarious-- rather than doing the investigation themselves."

In lots of civilized countries where these companies have their businesses, it' is forbidden by law to make racial, religious an other records of citizens, for employees it's a serious No-No.

If Amazon Germany or France would present a report with racial details, the justice would fall on them like several thousand tons of bricks.

"There are plenty of plausible situations where the infrastructure of civilization is gone, but the relics could still work - given enough power (massive global "super-Ebola" outbreak, for example)."

If email still works, somebody will surely click on an attachment containing the eBola-virus and we'll all be doomed.
